The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has published AISI S213-07-S1-09, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing—Lateral Design 2007 Edition With Supplement No. 1. The new document incorporates research findings on diagonal strap-braced walls and other updates. It provides an integrated treatment of Allowable Strength Design (ASD), Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD), and Limit States Design (LSD) in addressing the design of lateral force-resisting systems in a wide range of buildings constructed with cold-formed steel framing.
